I have never been one for sweets. Chocolate bars, caramel, cotton candy, not really my ideal sweet. The only candy I really could devour in a heartbeat, were gum drops. I loved them so much, that when I was a kid my mother made me a cake made out of entirely gummy candies. Gummy worms, gum drops, Juju-bee’s, any gummy you could think of.
I honestly never thought there could be a cake that could rival how great that one had been. But now…I honestly couldn’t believe what I was eating!
*5 minutes earlier*
We were still at Sugar Cube Corner, the first stop on Twilights tour of ponyville. The pink pony who had almost choked me, Pinkie Pie was her name coincidently, had offered as an apology free cupcakes. Still a bit dazed I couldn’t offer my reply, Twilight or Blue must have given one, because when I got my bearings, she was standing in front of me holding a giant cupcake above her head. It was what looked like vanilla cake, with a small whip cream top, but what stood out most was that it had a large cherry red gum drop in the center of it, surrounded by gummy worms and gummy bears and a gummy…is that an alligator?
“AHH!” I scream as the small alligator that had been camouflaged amongst the gummy candies atop the giant cupcake jumped at my face.
“Gummy! No surprise loving! Sorry about him…” Pinkie said before getting the small gator, which was named gummy, off of my head. “He has been in a face hugging mood ever since I tried to make him more lively, I guess I added TOO much sugar into that mix of sugar, Hot sauce, helium, lithium, fish, whipped cream, sardines, cookies, ice, and LOVE!” she said all one breath, somehow not affected by it.
“Uh, no problem, I-I probably shouldn’t have had that cupcake practically in my face, sorry.” I said rubbing my hoof on the back of my neck. “You don’t have to apologize, silly, you just need to smile and laugh at moments like that.” She said in a bubbly attitude.
Deciding to fallow her advice, I give her a small smile, mainly so I can avoid looking like I have mental disorders when I give a big one. “There you go! Now then, you’re here for that music thingy right?” she asks me setting the big cupcake down, with it making a disturbingly loud thud when it did.
“What?” I asked her, confused. “The music thingy! You know! That one you were dreaming of? That and that weird gator instrument thing you miss?”
I could feel my face just freeze when she said that. How in the world would she, who I have never met, know that I was missing my IPod and guitar?
“D-do you mean a music instrument?” I ask her in disbelief, she quickly nodded her head in confirmation.”Yep Yep Yep” she said before bouncing out of the room, returning with a saddle on her back carrying, to my disbelief, a black guitar case, with yellow thread lining.
I think my jaw dropped, because Blue Moon started giggling when she looked at me. The pink pony brought the case to me, and then took off the saddle bag, taking out to my shock, my IPod…somehow unbroken, unscratched, perfectly fine…..except it was covered in dust.
“H-how did you get this stuff?” I asked her in disbelief. “OH it was easy! On my usual trip to the clock people every Wednesday I took a detour and saw two ponies who looked like mean-ies giving you two a cart ride while you two were asleep. One of them dropped your stuff in a large can, probably to keep your stuff for themselves, the mean ponies. So I took your stuff back but when I tried to find you, you were gone, so I thought that It would be the best if I watched your stuff for you till you came to find it! Like a living lost and found!”
This is where I was confused, for multiple reasons. What did she mean by being pushed on cart by two ponies? What did she mean by clock people? Why did she not recognize and obvious kidnapping? And why did she look for my stuff in a garbage can?
I think Twilight was thinking the same thing cause she had a look of utter confusion on her face. Blue on the other hand simply shrugged before smiling and taking another bite from the giant cupcake.
Before I could ask anything, Pinkie suddenly started jumping up and down, “OH I almost forgot! I need to plan your party!” she said before running out of the store, after suddenly swiping my IPod.
“Hey!” but before I could get the chance to retake it, she was gone. “Don’t worry, I’m sure she will return it, she means well, even if she shows it a way that cant be understood.” Twilight said before taking a bite of the giant cupcake with Blue, who looked as if she was in her own personal heaven.
Letting out a sigh, I thought it best not to worry and joined the two in eating the giant cupcake…I mean it was made for me as an apology after all. To NOT eat it would be rude, and I didn’t want to make a bad impression.
So here I am, eating the most delicious desert ever created, with Twilight looking full and Blue Moon still devouring the cake.
“Ok then, you two ready to continue our tour?” Twilight asked us both. With a mouth full of cake, I simply nodded at her while Blue had let out a disappointed moan in having to depart from the delicious desert.
“Ok then, our next stop Is Sweet Apple Acres, the largest place in Ponyville, and the biggest business in town. The farm is an apple orchard, run by the Apple Family.” Twilight said as she led us towards our destination. While Twilight continued her lecture on the farm, I couldn’t help but have that strange feeling that…somewhere, something was watching us. It was probably just paranoia.
Sitting atop a building, a dark crow with dark glowing red eyes watched the trio walking around. It’s glowing red eyes started to turn as metal started to spin over most of it, like a camera lens does when one zooms in. As it moved from what little shade it stood In, due to a small cloud drifting infront of the sun, one could see the mechanical gears and plates making up the small robotic bird as it zoomed in on the white pony.
Suddenly a loud electronic click went off as it began to speak into the communicator in its head. “Subject spotted sir…what do you wish be done?” it spoke in a creepy and metallic voice. “
“Stand down…I don’t believe him to be a threat, but keep an eye on him. We don’t want our doctor friend using her against us.” A dark voice said into the crow’s built in speaker in its ear. “
“Of course, sir, as you wish…” it replied, keeping its red mechanical eyes on the white pony.
